Navigate the Complexities of the Healthcare Industry — The Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership with a Healthcare concentration is designed for current and future leaders in healthcare who need to hone their skills to lead in team-based, diverse settings. Given the often complex and dynamic nature of the healthcare administration field, this concentration seeks to provide the skills necessary to lead positive change in organizations, maintain ethical governance, and increase effectiveness in the day-to-day managing of healthcare departments.

Here is what some of our current and past students are saying about Claremont Lincoln University. We are committed to being a student-centered community and are proud of how we have continued to establish dialogue and long-lasting relationships with our graduates by showcasing their action-oriented and impactful work across the globe.
"In speaking to the CLU core, every student can expect an emersion in developing skills that will enhance personal leadership and self awareness. I hope that CLU meets every students' expectations with a bit of surprise and magic mixed in.
"I am a lifelong learner and am convinced that our reward is commensurate with our effort. Some students will just want to be able to place an M.A. after their name while others are seeking ways to change the world. With the mix of world class professors and an exemplary cohort, I believe students will not finish the program in the same mindset that they started. Everything fit together so perfectly and the scaffolding made the entire program manageable.
"I am most proud of heeding the prompt to "reinvent" myself during the 18-month program and to put my energy in an environment where I can make a difference."
"The Master's of Social Impact program taught me to take a grassroots approach to development."
"Prospective students can expect to be challenged to grow as leaders, collaborators, and change-makers in their field and sector. The knowledge provided by the Social Impact program combines high level theoretical and critical thinking with practical grassroots implementation of learning and tools. This program equips students to become transformational leaders.
"In addition to growing academically, personally, and professionally, I hope students gain a community of thought partners and allies rooted in the mission of social change, love, and justice."
